Toxic Release Inventory Reporting

newcycle1_0Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting provides the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and States an overview of who is using target chemicals, how they are being released to the environment and how releases occur.  TRI reporting covers releases to air, land and water.  Reporting requires identification of some management practices including recycling.  EPA and States may use this data to indentify where new regulations should be targeted.

Toxic Release Inventory Reporting is required for facilities that meet all of the following criteria:

  • Employs 10 or more full-time equivalent employees.

TRI reports are due July 1st each year.  Reporting is typically made electronically using the TRI-Me software.  Reports are submitted to the US EPA reporting center and to the State’s reporting contact.

Having a good environmental record-keeping system will help in developing TRI reports.  Some sampling and laboratory analyses may be needed.
